I will swap you your smoked oysters, you may have the Brussels sprouts. I might have a sardine or two, though those little skeletons grossed me out when I found them when I was about 10. Used to love them....

Dill sounds like a good idea. I'll have to give that a try.

As a child, when our parents went out, our special supper was hard boiled eggs, spinach, sardines, and saltine crackers. Those little skeletons--BLECH! But as a child, you could have gotten me to do almost anything for hb eggs, spinach, sardines, and saltine crackers. I still eat 3/4 of those. I'd claim the smoked oysters, btw, but I'd also want the brussels sprouts. The ones in the garden are now ready...to me, they taste like "baby" cabbage...the little head that sprouts after you harvest the large head.

For those who mentioned Brussels sprouts, huh? Most people don't like them. With me, I went through a weird period in late menopause (thank heaven, that's over) when almost everything smelled bad ... especially cucumbers and watermelon. Got most of it back, but still do not like cucumbers and watermelon, and it pisses me off. These are things I loved, the real feel of summer. I want to like them. If you'd have asked me 5 years ago, I'd never have believed that anyone could possibly dislike watermelon or cucumbers. That crispy, light, epitome of summer. Every summer I try, and every time I try, I still don't like them. To me they now smell and taste the same (and yes, I've been told they do have a chemical compound in common). If I had to develop an aversion to something in middle age, couldn't it have been something fattening?

I don't much care for any of those either, well except for the peaches.
